    Learn a little Swedish language and culture. Learn English too if you like. Meet well-travelled, broadly educated individuals who like to share their experiences and learn from others too.

  • Aide


    Need some help with maintenance of a historic house built in 1900. This summer we need one side of a small out-building repaneled and could use some help on that for a day or two. We'd very much like to have some creative engineering students with energy and eco ideas to join us as well as woodworkers, painters, and eco-gardners or even vintners. Want to start a small vineyard? Musicians and artists welcome. No smoking or pets however, but a few friendly cats and hedgehogs do wander the property from time to time.

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    We are writers and talkers and love languages. We are fluent in English and Swedish and between the two of us know a bit of French, Spanish, German, Russian, and Arabic.

  • Hébergement


    Bed and board available for those who are vaccinated for COVID19.

    We continue to exercise caution and may seem 'distant', but we're still friendly. Send us a message!

    If you have a van, then 'distancing' is a bit easier.

    Here is the latest entry requirement about COVID19 posting from February 2022 on coming to Sweden;
    Please check the official sites regularly though, Things can change.

    If you come to Östergötland (East Sweden), there are great medieval sites to visit in the area as well as good fishing, hiking, kayaking, and more. Our home is within just 100 meters of river, canal, and large lake with sailing, wind surfing and beaches for swimming too (water temp is around 22C by July). Happy to teach a little Swedish too, and for those with Swedish roots, an opportunity to look up ancestors and/or relatives.

    We are reluctant to offer more than 4-7 days initially just in case things are not what any of us anticipated, BUT we can be flexible too. If things are great, and you are flexible, a few more days to a week is possible. Most of the time we need painting and gardening help, but if you are handy with construction, we can always use your help too. Anyone who understands solar or wind power?! We'd love to jump off the grid with the right help (or at least find alternative ways to boost electricity).

    Autres infos...

    Europeans can fly to Skavsta inexpensively and take a bus to Linköping which is not far from our home. KLM also flies directly from Amsterdam to Linköping. AND we are very responsive to your messages. If we are not hosting workawayers during some months, however, you will receive an automated reply. These do not always count towards the average time to respond data!

    Vans work well in the front street. Smaller vans can park on the property. Campers will not work unfortunately. No electricity, but happy to fill the water tanks.
